Rosary Beads and the nuns who taught me
Conscience, kindness and gratitude have nothing at all to do with religion. (Certainly, religion didn't stop priests from raping thousands of little boys for decades or centuries! Conscience and empathy is innate -- babies have been shown to have it, as have many animals.
It needs to be reinforced and instilled in man more than animals.
There is no evidence for that, andrea. Countries with the highest rates of atheism also tend to rate high in terms of kindness, in both governmental policies and personal actions. Conversely, theocracies (whose policies are determined by religion) are invariably brutal and repressive.
I will pray for you to my God of love, compassion, kindness, and forgiveness .
If you feel the need to talk to yourself, go ahead. If you hear voices talking to you, get medical help immediately. I'm so sorry you were brainwashed as a child to believe things that are nothing more than fairy tales written by some brutish nomadic herders. If you ever need to learn how to be a good person without invisible friends, I'm sure you'll find that atheists are some of the most caring, loving people around.
Great prayer bead photo… very zen
Talk to your God and the ones that have gone before ... he is always listening and they are always near ...
This is just beautiful!
Yes! It is gorgeous!
